- Ankle supports encourage Ambulation (walking):
- Edema (swelling) reduction
- Retain proprioception (sensory perception of area)
- Retain strength
- Limits abnormal motion but allows appropriate & necessary motion.
- Can help with Knee Hyper-Extension.
- Knee Cap
- Lower Leg Length / Size of calf
- Tibial Bone Plateau (area just below knee cap)
- (Malleolus) the bony protuberance on either side of the ankle, at the lower end of the bottom of lower leg.
- Heel Bone (Calcaneous)
- Achilles Tendon
- Calf Muscle
- Snug Fit Measurement: Devices are sized at a compressed fit.
- Measuring loose vs. skin tight can result in incorrect measurement.
- Measure: Ankle Circumference; Calf Muscle at the thickest area; Length from Ankle to Knee
- Can be dictated by support used.
- Choose best device for injury.
- Fit from behind the ankle to the front.
- Best fit is from sitting position with foot flat on the floor.
- Laces are fixed within the two velcro straps. Make lace adjustments first.
- Apply the large velcro tabs and then pull across the long/slim velcro tabs to appropriate tightness.
- Should be applied from the bottom of the brace (at toe end) to the top of the brace (calf end) or (bottom up) with laces or straps.
- The higher the support length is up to and through the gastroc, the more effective the brace will be.
- Mark devices “Left” / “Right” as they will tend to form to foot they shape.
- Check fitting sitting down and also while walking.
- Make sure brace has been fitted with appropriate strap tightness.
- Brace should not dig into or irritate the Achilles tendon, bottom of the foot or top of the foot.
- Add compression from straps starting from the bottom of the brace (at toe end) to the top of the brace (calf end) or (bottom up) with laces or straps.
- Decrease compression from top (calf end) to bottom (toe end).
- Disengaging velcro and securing tabs prior to and after wearing will help with future fittings .
